Indulge in a rich and flavorful Creamy Garlic Parmesan Chicken that’s perfect for a quick and comforting weeknight dinner. Tender chicken breasts are simmered in a luscious garlic Parmesan sauce, making it a family favorite.

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.
    • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for 6-7 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  2. Make the Sauce:
    • In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.
    • Pour in the chicken broth and heavy cream, stirring to combine. Bring the mixture to a simmer.
    • Gradually whisk in the grated Parmesan cheese until the sauce is smooth and creamy.
    • Add the Italian seasoning and crushed red pepper flakes (if using), stirring well to incorporate.
  3. Combine and Serve:
    • Return the cooked chicken breasts to the skillet, spooning some of the sauce over the top.
    • Simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes to allow the flavors to meld and the chicken to heat through.
    • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
